Lord Justice Sullivan:
1. For the reasons set out in the approved judgment which I now hand down this appeal is allowed. The injunction granted by Mr Leighton Williams QC sitting as a deputy judge of the High Court on 28 July 2010 is discharged.
2. The respondent is to pay the appellant's costs in the Court of Appeal and in the High Court. Those costs are to be summarily assessed. I summarily assess them in the sum of £47,000. If the appellant wishes to make submissions as to the quantum then it is to do so within seven days of receipt of this order in writing with a copy to the respondent.
Order: Appeal allowed; Costs assessed at £47,000
